This is exactly what I mean. There are many reasons I might use various tools and methods. To allow what others do and say to dictate my methods make me a victim of hype and marketing. I's rather be a damn good photographer who's in demand because of his work. If I went around trying to compete with soccer moms and GWC's I'd be one of them. No way. By the way these people existed long before 010101. There are just more of them these days. I din't pay attention to them before, and i don't now. I cant afford to.
